“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.” ~ Douglas AdamsMany people think I’m a bit on the obsessive side. I love to be on time. I’m never ‘fashionably late’. If I say I’ll be somewhere at a certain time, and I find I can’t, I will call and let them know. I have never appreciated sitting in a doctor’s office waiting for the appointment I scheduled, and finding out that earlier, the doctor had to rush out on an emergency. I have relaxed some in the last year or so. I’m no longer 30 – 45 minutes early for everything, now, I try to be 10 to 15 minutes early instead. So, when you tell me, you’re going to call at a specific time, then don’t…. that makes me crazy. Or, if you call at the last 3 minutes in that time frame and say you can’t make it, and you’ll call later, and give me another time frame – – and THEN don’t call me, I’m no longer crazy… I’m insane. I’m incensed!! Kathy
